Two exciting new bands are hitting the road together for a spring tour and there's a Detroit date! Temples with special guest Drowners play the Magic Stick in Detroit on April 27th. Advance tickets are available here. If you're not familiar with either of these bands, read on...

Temples released their psychedelic-cosmic-glamorific album Sun Structures this week and the album has been enjoying rave reviews.  It's one of the best releases of 2014 so far -- the album instantly brings to mind the Beatles and the Byrds, yet also newer psychedelic rock-influenced bands like the Dandy Warhols, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angels, label mates TOY, etc. Check out a couple of songs from Temples below and purchase the whole stellar album here.







Meanwhile, opening act Drowners also released one of 2014's best albums so far. Drowners hail from NYC via Wales and there's no way to avoid the comparison -- they sound more like the Strokes than the last couple of Strokes' records. The songs are short, sweet, and catchy as hell. Fans of the Strokes, Vaccines, Palma Violets, and Parquet Courts will dig this album. Check out the video for "Luv, Hold Me Down" (listen for the Johnny Marr-"This-Charming-Man"-like guitar around 2 minutes in) and stream the full debut album from Drowners below. FYI: The digital version of the album is only 4.99 at Amazon right now.
